NATO phonetic alphabet The NATO phonetic alphabet, more accurately known as the International Radiotelephony Spelling Alphabet and also called the ICAO phonetic or ICAO spelling alphabet, as well as the ITU phonetic alphabet, is the most widely used spelling alphabet. Although often called "phonetic alphabets", spelling alphabets are unassociated with such phonetic transcription systems as the International Phonetic Alphabet; instead, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) alphabet so assigned code words acrophonically to the letters of the English alphabet that critical combinations of letters and numbers can be pronounced and understood despite language barriers or transmission static.

So many donations rolled in Monday at Summit Auto dealership that it will take a full-size tractor-trailer to get them to people who need them, O’Casey said. Jon Cleland, owner of Greater Syracuse Moving & Storage, offered to move the items for free in one of his tractor-trailers, said O’Casey, who’s from Central New York and lives in New Jersey.
